Local boy to audition for record deal

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A Region 8 boy will be auditioning for a chance to sign with a major record label.

Mykel Lewis made international news last year after he performed in the talent show at University Heights Intermediate School in Jonesboro with his amazing rendition of Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You."

The video of his performance gained over 1,000,000 views on Facebook and a YouTube video of his has over 11,000 views.

Mykel has the chance now to audition for season 8 of America's Got Anointing, which will take place on June 2-4 in Tallahassee, Florida.

Since Mykel will pay his own expenses for the trip, he is seeking sponsors to help him get to Florida.

An account has been set up at Centennial Bank at 2901 E. Highland Drive in Jonesboro.

Donations can be made under the name Kenyetta Anderson or Mykel Lewis.
